As I head out for the Thanksgiving holiday, I leave you with today’s Game Plan column called Try Kindness in Trying Times. I find that people are too quick to lash out and judge others without any knowledge of what might be really going on. We can’t control how others behave, but we can exhibit kindness and we can even go out of our way to understand or be tolerant.

Take a deep breath, look people in the eye, and think of all the reasons you have to be grateful.

Happy Thanksgiving.
